A 96-YEAR-OLD woman with a bone disorder has beaten the odds to walk 100 laps around a car park after being inspired by Captain Sir Tom Moore.

Katharine 'Kitty' Webb of Weymouth has suffered with osteoporosis for more than 30 years and can only stand with the aid of a walking frame.

However, after being inspired by her hero Captain Sir Tom Moore during lockdown, the spritely grandma-of-one, who lives in Buxton Road, decided to raise spirits - and as much cash as possible - for the Royal Osteoporosis Society Nurses Helpline.

Her son, Andy Webb said: "During the pandemic, it's been difficult for her to get any exercise.

"She's had osteoporosis for more than 30 years so she's quite frail and finds it difficult to even walk.

"During the past year she found inspiration from Sir Tom after reading his autobiography during Christmas."

On 6 April 2020, at the age of 99, Sir Tom began to walk one hundred lengths of his garden in aid of NHS Charities Together, with the goal of raising £1,000 by his 100th birthday.

On his 100th birthday, April 30, he raised more than £32.79 million.

Kitty began her four-day challenge on April 30 - the date of Sir Tom's birthday and completed the feat yesterday morning.

"Each lap for my mum was around 25 metres, which doesn't sound much, but she's on pain killers because of her bone disorder - so it's a fair old distance for her," said Mr Webb.

"She walked 25 laps per day.

"During lockdown my mum has missed contact with a lot of people, especially her grand daughter Lisa but regularly communicates by Facetime on her iPad each week.

"One of the reasons she feels so attached to Sir Tom's story is the similarities he shares with my dad Bryan, who died in 2006 aged 86.

"The common love of motorbikes with Sir Tom reminded Kitty of Bryan - and how they spent their courting days on long country walks and rides on a Triumph.

"She still likes motorsport and watches Formula 1, and is a massive fan of Lewis Hamilton."

Kitty originally wanted to raise £100, but has since beaten that target and now wants to raise as much as possible.

After the challenge the 96-year-old said: "I'm tired, but I've a great sense of achievement and very impressed with the money I've raised."
